Dear Loyal ShamROCKers,

We appreciate your patience throughout this time of uncertainty as we develop a plan with some exciting options for how we continue to celebrate ShamROCK. We are devastated that we will not be able to experience all the smiles, festive outfits & memories with our thousands of ShamROCKers as we have done for the past 26 years. 7 years ago we even married a couple on our Pint Stage who met at ShamROCK years prior!

With that being said, ShamROCK will rainbow on into the Fall with our Halfway to ShamROCK Block Party in front of the Field Irish Pub on 5th Ave on 9/12/2020 and in 2021 with the return of everyone's favorite Irish Fest on 3/13/2021!
Therefore, we have created a variety of options so you can select the choice that is right for you.
If you have not made a decision by 3/22/2020, your ticket purchase will be automatically credited to ShamROCK 2021CLICK HERE TO SELECT OPTION.
Wishing everyone health and goodwill and sending extra Irish love during this time.

Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation


The Gaslamp Quarter Historical Foundation (GQHF) is dedicated to preserving the architecture, culture and history of the Gaslamp Quarter, a 16 ½-block area designated as an historic district and listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1979. Through museum exhibits, tours, festivals and educational programs for children and adults, the GQHF opens a window to the past by depicting the historical development of downtown San Diego since 1850. The Foundation operates from the oldest standing residence in the Gaslamp Quarter, the Davis-Horton House Museum, a repository of artifacts, photos and archives that we preserve for residents and visitors from around the world to enjoy. Founded in 1981 as a nonprofit corporation and recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt entity, the Foundation is led by an active Board of Directors that provides vision and leadership, sets policy and oversees the organization’s financial health. A professional staff led by an Executive Director carries out board policies and a Manager of Museum Operations manages the day-to-day operations of the Foundation and the Museum.
